The 49ers are a much tougher defensive team than the Texans.
The pats will be forced to play the run with kapernick and Gore back there.
Both Talib and Dennard left the game yesterday, While Arringtonhad a good game yesterday, the pats will be hurting in the defensive backfield next week.
Hopefully the weather will be bad
And I think Houston is going to lose one of the games against the colts
Bottom line, it will take the NY Jets as long to get to the Patriot Organization's level as it would take the Space Shuttle to reach Proxima Centauri, and if you don't know how long that is, go look it up.

Look at how differently the Pats and Jets handled finding a replacement receiver after injury. Even though Donte' Stallworth is available, we bring in two scrubs from Sparano's Miami debacle, whilst the Pats sign the guy and have him in the lineup right away. Guess what? Brady hits him for a 63 yard TD. Right, cheating.
Make no mistake: As long as Brady is healthy and the Pats are "on", no one beats them.
It is what it is, many of us will never give them the credit you think is due them, because we know what depths Beli is willing to sink....we dont trust the organization, pure and simple...and along with the trust went the respect.
McDaniels has brought the running game back to NE. They have been one dimensional the past few years but not anymore.
Aquib Talib makes the defense totally different. Then can let him play without safety help and send more pass rushers.
The Pats will win the super bowl again this year.
And until we are rid of rex and tanny, we will have no chance at overtaking the pats. They have run us into the ground.
If I'm Gary Kubiak, I'm pissed my team didn't show up for the Monday Night game, but I would view it as a useful motivational tool. The players were probably feeling pretty good about themselves before last night. It's a wake-up call that they still have a lot of work to do to compete with the best in the AFC. They may actually look back on this game and view it as a positive in the development of the franchise. Sometimes losses can be defining -- in both good and bad ways.
BTW, can anyone remember what happened the last time the Pats met a team in the playoffs that they had blown out at home a few weeks prior? The scenario sounds familiar.
No they wont. The Colts are a bad team masqurading as a playoff team. Houston will manhandle them twice.Texans will lose at least one game to the Colts
BTW I really don't expect any Jets fans to respect BB/Pats I just like pointing out the logic flaws. I do empathize with the Jets struggles as I know exactly how it feels to be a long suffering fan. The only glimmer of hope we had pre kraft was crushed during an embarassing SB beat down by the Bears.
The Jets D is there and will be bolstered when they get that QB thingy figured out. Turnarounds in the NFL can happen relatively quick (either up or down) so ya never know...
As for your last comment, how many times does lightning strike in the same place twice?
On the O side, I think it was more of Matt Shaub having an off night. He was not as accurate as he normally is. Perhaps he is a bad "big-game" QB? (Maybe the Jets can interest the Texans in a QB with a lot of winning play-off experience?)
